A detailed, lavishly illustrated description of water and water issues in California.

The Quarterly Review of Biology said it was "a major reference work of interest to applied ecologists concerned with water supply and usage and to ecologists in general in California." Illustrations, maps, charts, graphs, diagrams, and bibliography.
